Check what dev makes that app advertised, and then see if you got an app made by the same dev.

good idea, i just checked and saw no connection... however i did finally take the time to read the "opt out" and went to the web page on my PC to be removed from the list. Time will tell if this works or not. Thanks

Thats the new way to advertise because of apps to block ads. I found the app bartender and some live wallpapers have these tied into them

There is a free app called addons detector that will tell you if any apps in your phone use push messages (that is what that is) and remove the apps that do if you want.
